    No, it's not safe. Get it fixed. It's functionally similar to having a 3-prong dryer cord with no ground, and those have been outlawed in new construction for decades, for good reasons. They were never a good idea, even when they were legal due to manufacturer pressure. Enough actual deaths ensued that they were banned.

    Does this answer your question? Should my dryer cord's neutral and ground be connected to the same terminal?
